What Does The Bible Say About The Sabbath?

Sabbath 29024671978637

The fourth Commandment from God’s unchangeable law is ‘remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

You must keep this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, who is the Lord of the Sabbath. The evening is at sunset when the day ends and another day begins. Therefore, Sabbath starts from sunset on the sixth day to sunset the seventh day.

Exodus 20:10 – But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it, thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.

You are reminded in the book of Exodus how important the Sabbath is to God. To understand why it is so hard for many to keep the Sabbath, you must understand the working of the Devil. Changing the calendar and the months and duping us to believe that we should worship Sunday’s instead of a Saturday.

I am not God; therefore, I do not know whether those who worship on a Sunday is breaking the rules or just blindly following the path the Devil choose for them. But one thing is clear; God told us to remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

Irrespective of how much they have changed the calendar and the words of God. The Devil fall short in convincing millions of people to worship on the day he and his evil spirits chose.

Isaiah 58:13 – If thou turn thy foot away from the sabbath, from doing pleasure on my day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words.

Ezekiel 20:20 – And keep my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between you and me, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God. We cannot allow the Devil to take us off track.

When God says the word ‘shall’ it means absolute there are no in-betweens, perhaps, or maybe. He means it must be, done and he reinforces His instructions in Leviticus 19:30 – You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the Lord.
